     Game Update #318b  in sequence (file #521)
     Admin notes: Part 2.

     Combat lasted 4 phases one turn.  12 Seconds of combat but
     in reality was about 2.5 minutes from sight of the Giant to
     the end.  Plus another 30 or 45 seconds after his death of
     intense activity.  Experience time -

     I honestly thought this would be a dreadful encounter.  I knew
     once the giant attacked it would've been all over for some.
     He could've killed anyone with a single blow likely.  But
     I did it on purely random factors.  Rolled his position, and
     angle from ship based on a random 360 degree circle.  Same for
     his fall.  If he fell 90 degrees the ship might've sunk.  He
     was just out of reach by one phase or he'd have gotten a strike
     in.  Oh well.  Theres always next time :)


      Sea Giant Stats -

      If you've guessed he was a Kotothi giant intent on capture
      of the ship after slaughtering a few folks.  He didn't
      get change to use his net or spells.  :<

      Hit Points - 120 he took 168.

        DTV  -8*    HC  NA      INT  6        
      He was a slow bugger but strong.  He had CDF 15 which made
      experience huge.  


       [Voyage continues --]

       Day 31 - Rest of the day is cleanup of the ship and fixing
         the timber repairs and moving things around in the hold.

         There is a storm later that afternoon previously reported
         on in part A and other update.

       Day 32 - Nothing
       Day 33 - That night the ship encounters those 2 other
         Marentian merchants and are friendly encounters.

       Day 34 -

         By now the ship has travelled for almost 2 full weeks.
         The crew and passengers are testy and anxious to get
         to land.  This close to Marentia folks prepare their
         material for landfall soon.

         As they get closer to shore more and more ships are
         seen going to and fro.

         As the ship spots Sivas mid-morning everyone notices
         a major inrease in ship traffic.  In fact the time
         leaving port there were half maybe a third the amount
         of ships.  Most of them are military triremes and other
         military ships going about maneuvers, loading of cargo
         or other operations.

         Aren explains: "They must be building up in case we
           failed a military force to go against Clima. We
           may be just in time."

         Farseeker: "Those two ships there.  They were slated
           to be deconstructed for parts when I last saw them
           near the Sivas fort."

         [An hour later Aren and Xian hide below deck.  A
          pilot ship arrives from port and meets the ship.
          A port pilot, 2 officers, 4 crew and 4 military
          personnel with a military officer board the ship.

          By now Damon has flown the Marentian flag but
          an inspection is in order.  The pilot and crew
          get with Damon to plot a course in the harbor.  Its
          too crowded to actually dock at this point and
          may have to wait.

          Officier: "State your business."

          Farseeker: "On designated mission by your superiors.
            We can't discuss the matter."
          Offiicer: "You will and can or you won't be entering
            this area."
          Marta: "How long before we can dock?"
          OFficier: "Never if I have anything to say about it."
          Farseeker: "Listen." [Farseeker steps forward closer
           to the officer.  The other guards for the officer
           place hands on sword.  The officer waves his hand
           and Farseeker whispers to the man and leans back.
           The officer turns pale then turns to a guard and
           the guard rushes to the pilot boat.  A crewman
           quickly pilots the boat back to shore.]
          Officer: "This will have to be checked out."
          Farseeker: "Of course. till then.  Let me introduce
            you to some folks."

          [Farseeker begins introductions but in general does
           not give details. Two guards return from below
           deck and report the ship only has material and
           personell aboard.  No mention of Aren or Xian.  A
           head count is given to the officer.  When the
           guards and officer confer Caladan asks Farseeker
           what he said]

          Farseeker: "Just a military code given by the King's
            staff.  It will have to be verified.  Once it is
            then we'll have free access into Lake Sivas and
            can dock."

          [A half hour later a new officer comes to the ship
           with the boat that went to shore.  This one is
           dressed with some medals in full uniform]

          New Officer: "Sorry for the delay.  We know who you
            are now.  Do you have anything to declare first?"
          Farseeker: "Only code green on success and no hostiles
          Officer: "What is your destination?"
          Farseeker: "That is up to you."
          New Officer: "No.  We know your expected at Maren.  Pleae
            sail there immediately.  You know the way or need an
          Farseeker: "Our Captain Damon will be fine to find it,
            thank you captain."
          Captain: "I do have orders that we should inspect the
            ship to ensure things."
          Farseeker: "Is this required?"
          Captain: "I'm afraid so."
          Farseeker: "Fine."

          [An hour later after a through search of the ship
           the Marentians return topside.  They inspected
           virtually all the gear.  Discussion of magical
           items was done.  The captain wanted to document
           or confiscate it but his orders were to give the
           ship free reign.  Not even an official log entry
           was made of the event.  Which surprised even
           Damon as every ship entering port has to have some
           records made.  The Marentian pilot exits the ship
           with the others when he realized no docking into
           port will be made.]

          [The small pilot ship orders a larger craft to come
           out to retrieve the bodies of the dead that were
           preserved by Chion.  Valgor, Diplomats Vaeth, Rua,
           Gord, Corz, Troyis and Shah are gathered to be
           taken ashore for burial or processing to their
           homeland.  Cholan is awakened when he is moved to
           the ship as well and its promoised he will get
           a highly skilled healer to help.  They will try
           to find one skilled in Regeneration to help his
           hand but don't know of the abilities of those already
           in Sivas.]

          [After almost 3 hours in the harbor of Sivas the
           ship leaves the shallow waters and enters Lake
           Sivas toward Maren 80 miles way.  By now its
           mid afternoon.]

          [Aren and Xian come topside.  When asked Trembyl
           explains that he used an illusion to make Aren
           look like a normal person twice.]

       Day 35 -

         [That night the serpent is spotted but that's the only
          encounter.  Lake craft is spotted but mostly are
          fishermen or pleasure craft going various ways.]

         [About 11:30 that evening the ship slows down and enters
          Maren's port.  Being so late at night 2 pilots are
          sent to navigate the port waterways and guide the
          ship into a docking position.  It takes a good 25
          minutes to dock and process the ropes and anchors.
          In that time a contigent of guards and others are
          sent for.

          But being near midnight the highest officer is a
          Major who comes to the ship with a group of 20 guards.
          Two civilans in silks also approach the ship.

          The major boards.

          Major: "I am Major Jensen.  We are eager to hear of
            your mission specifics.  We will have to debrief
            each one of you and process the others.  There
            are diplomatic issues to deal with."
          Civilian: "I am Kam Angle aide to his Majesty King
            Maros. The King would be asleep by now from a long
            day's work.  But I am in a position to offer sleeping
            quarters in the castle for a morning meeting with him.
            We have already cleared the morning session's events
            for the meeting.  For the diplomats they will also
            be givne quarters.  However everyone will have to
            submit to some security precautions."
          Major Jensen: "Entering the castle no one will be
            armed.  Weapons will be taken at the entrance and
            stored.  You will get them back.  We will have
            inspections of persons to ensure no violations.  We
            will also inspect for magical items that could endanger
            the security of the castle or its people.  If you have
            anything to declare beforehand do so.  If anyone
            needs immediate healing we have healers.  Same for
            food or other services.  These guards will escoret
            everyone to the castle.  We have carriages waiting."
          Farseeker: "The ship?"
          Major Jensen: "We will leave snetries.  Our orders are
            unspecific at this point.  I'm sure a full disclosure
            of its contents and inventory will have to be done.
            But not tonight.  So there will be time to discuss
            this later."
          Damon: "I wish to remain here on board."
          Major Jensen: "You must be tired --"
          Angle: "That is fine." [The Major hushes and nods]


          Situation: Ship is in Maren City capital of Marentia.
          There is going to be debriefings and questioning
          tomorrow likely all day after a meeting with the
          king.  Discussion of mission parameters will be asked
          and reasked.  If there is anything you are going to
          hide let me know.  If not I assume you tell everything.
          At this point no major need to role play it but I may
          in next update some.  If you have anything else to
          declare or do let me know as well.

          At this point the adventure for you guys is 99% over
          For me its 90%.  I still have a ton of logistical things
          to do.  I will be finalizing the 2 week stuff for folks
          and getting back to you.

          Monday I hope to do the King's stuff.  By then hope to
          be done with the 2 week stuff as well.  Then we'll move on.

          Congratulations for all those who lived!

          Actions? Comments?
